There are many Weird Al songs that never made it to the record store and Pac Man was one of them. Well now it is available on the new compilation “Squeeze Box” If you don’t have all of Al’s albums already (shame on you) then pick up Squeeze Box .
Here is the story behind Pac Man from Al himself:
This was recorded in a garage on a 4-track cassette Portastudio way back in 1981, after “My Bologna” and “Another One Rides the Bus” but before I had landed a real record deal. Now the song is finally getting a proper release as a track on the rarities disc in my upcoming box set, with the permission and blessing of the George Harrison estate (Thanks, Dhani & Olivia!). “Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic” is coming out in November, but it’s a VERY limited release… so if you really want one, make sure you pre-order by Feb. 28!
